I am here because I want to share my unique theme with everyone and possibly get some pointers. And also, maybe give some people ideas. I am completely open and happy to accept suggestions. So if you think something won't work, or something needs a little tweaking, please let me know. This is also my first run of actually putting all of my ideas out in front of me so, yeah. Here goes nothing.
We are going to have our ceremony in our reception space, so everyone will be sitting at their reception spots and my dad is getting online ordained to marry us (we are quite non traditional). our colors are black white and red. I will walk down the aisle to So this is love from Cinderella. And throughout the ceremony and reception eating there will be disney music.
So when people first walk in, there will be name cards clothes pinned on ribbons for each table, I would like to drape them but I don't know if it will work, if not, it'll be laid out on a table. They will take their card and clothes pin and go to the table. somewhat like this, but I will paint each clothespin black with white polkadots and put a little red bow on them.
These are my centerpiece ideas,
I will make them with styrofoam balls and fake flowers. They will all be red, and I will alternate putting the bow around the neck or on top of the head. The stand, will be black but I will put a layer of white lace around the base. I will also do tea lights around these like this...
Then each table will have a vintage disney poster, like this...
we will print them ourselves and frame them. this will be the "table number" I have to see if my venue will let me but we want to rent a popcorn machine, and as our favors we will get personalized glass jars that have lids, and have a candy buffet, so everyone can fill their jar how they want. These are my bridesmaid dresses, but they will have a black belt instead.
I will have 2 dresses, a long one for the ceremony with a birdcage veil and this one for the reception
My FI and I will also come out to the reception wearing the husband and bride mickey mouse ear hats. My bridesmaid gifts will be the hair combs they will wear in their hair. I also really wanted to do paper lantern send offs at my reception, but I doubt my venue will allow that. So, I will give each guest a paper that says, my wish for the bride and groom.... and they can write a wish and put it in a big jar, and the next night I will go to a local park with whoever wants to come and set off the paper lanterns. We won't hire a DJ, I will make a playlist and randomize it. My moms friend is a photographer. What do you ladies think? I would love any advice. Thanks!
